Would more youtube content be appreciated? Discuss

I love learning cool new stuff. I find all sorts of cool stuff on Youtube, spotify, Nebula, and podcasts that I'd like to share. And, it's hard to find, and I wish you all shared more cool audio and video content as well. I thought we could talk about how cool it is to post more cool content. Along with this is a question about the place for subscription-based or paywall audio/video content as well. [more inside]

Sharing and Over-sharing

We've had a couple of threads about Lastpass: the news of the breach and an ask for alternatives. It's pushed my buttons as being across the line into "don't show your dirty laundry in public."

I get that we build community by sharing info about ourselves, it's why I like a MetaTalkTail Hour and the Free Threads. Recommending a password manager by dint of your personal experience also serves to tell the world how you secure your online activity. [more inside]

Editorialising on the blue?

I was under the impression that too much personal input or editorialising is discouraged when making metafilter posts, posts are supposed to be fairly neutral. But I don't actually see this in any of the guidelines. Did I imagine this? [more inside]
